The New York Times "...her subtlety and sureness command serious attention" The New Yorker Born in Lisboa, Portugal and now based in New York City, Sara Serpa is a vocalist, composer and bandleader exploring jazz and contemporary music. Since moving to the city, Serpa has been involved in numerous projects with celebrated musicians such as Greg Osby, Danilo Perez, Ran Blake, and John Zorn to name a few. Besides her duo with Portuguese guitarist Andr Matos, with whom she released "Primavera" in 2014, she has a collaborative duo with the noir-pianist Ran Blake (together, they have 3 albums, the latest being Kitano Noir (2015)), sings with John Zorn's vocal project Mycale, and leads her own vocal ensemble, City Fragments. For the past two years, Sara has been included on the Downbeat Critics Poll list of Rising Star Vocalist (2014 and 2015). For this set, Serpa invites her long-time partner/ collaborator Andr Matos, along with pianist Pete Rende and drummer Billy Mintz.

    SARA SERPA Portuguese singer Sara Serpa & guitarist Andr Matos revisit their recent album "Primavera", adding some new music the duo has been working on. The 2014 release of "Primavera", the debut for the duo, was widely acclaimed by both press and the public. The New York Times says "Primavera is gemlike in its beauty and precision, and manages to be purely about the depth of their rapport (...)"; and the New Yorker calls it "(...) an enchanting new recording." Past collaborations of the duo include Guillermo Klein, Thomas Morgan or Pete Rende. Serpa and Matos will be joined this evening by two extraordinary musicians: Leo Genovese on piano and keys and Billy Mintz on drums. $10 cover plus $10 minimum http://www.saraserpa.com , http://www.serpamatos.com
